A Drug-Free Approach to Back Pain Recovery

Parma chiropractic back pain treatmentChiropractic is centered on the concept of enabling your body to heal naturally through spinal adjustments and lifestyle changes that encourage overall health. For Baker Chiropractic Wellness Center, this means working hard to restore your body's natural performance to avoid the need for medications or surgery. We see that most of our Parma patients are relieved to find a natural solution for their health problems.

One benefit of chiropractic is that it helps people minimize or eliminate the use of drugs. Prescription medications are oftentimes issued to patients who have back problems. This is such a serious concern that the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) issued a news release stating that opioid (painkiller) risks outweigh the advantages when prescribed for back pain.

Some of the most popular narcotics, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, include hydrocodone (Vicodin), oxycodone (OxyContin and Percocet), morphine, and codeine. Figures offered by the AAN cite the fact that approximately 50% of the patients taking these drugs for a period of three months are still taking them five years later. This can further complicate the problem of back pain and healing, particularly if an opiate dependency arises.

Contrast that to chiropractic which involves natural healing and the benefits are obvious. While a drug might be useful at temporarily suppressing the symptoms of a health condition, it's not a long-term solution to the problem. Drugs don't mend your injured spine; it will only cover up the pain.

Baker Chiropractic Wellness Center will first examine you to get to the root of your back problems and then work with you to address the problem -- without risky drugs.

If you're ready to get out of pain, naturally, give our Parma office a call at (440) 888-6979 to make an appointment with Baker Chiropractic Wellness Center.
